Bring back Arnie!!
With the movie AVP coming out on the 25th I starrted to wonder if it's time for another stand alone Predator film. The first with Arnie was a action/thriller and was IMO one of the best alien/monster movies ever. However the second was so so and became a much more action based movie then anything else.
So if there is a third movie made should they bring back Arnolds or Glovers character? Make all new characters? Be based in the future on a different world? I guess I just want to know what you think about the idea of a third.
As for me well I think they should bring back Arnolds character. He's retired and living alone somewhere and the army comes to reinstate him after a group of eliet soldiers dissaper on a mission somewhere. Desert would be cool or jungle no city. Or another Perdator discovers his fallen commrads ship and sees a picture on the computer of Arnolds character and decides to go revenge on his ass.
Yes bring Arnold back though
Long long ago I after I saw No Escape I wanted Ray Liotta to play the hero in Predator 3, but that was so long ago. I'd take a new Predator movie though.
Get matt damon or colin farell to fight the predator. But what if they did predator in feudal japan fight samuris?
Arnold won't do another Predator movie. He's a smart guy. He turned down Predator 2 because he didn't like the idea of the urban Predator and I'm pretty damn sure he saw the reactions to AVP.
The Rock should take on The Predator. Bring it back to the jungle.
The Predator in SPACE dammit! LV1201 would kick ass!
From what I've last read from the development of Pred 3.They wanted both Arnie and Danny Back for it. (personally I Liked bothe of them in the movies) Both did show interest, but from what I know it'sstill in development hell. I'd kill to se both in it.
Actually a great idea. I can see the rock fighting the predator.
Yes, with all new characters. I like how the Preds have been hunting humans all over the world for centuries, so a movie set in the past or the future would be cool. I dont think they would have an interest in revenge on Arnold or Danny. Especially not Danny, since I take it that the elder Pred giving him the antique gun at the end of Predator 2 as a sign of respect.
I don't think that they would go after Danny or Arnie for revenge. But for some reason I would like to see both of them in a movie. (but then I prefer Continuity linking) Maybe they could pass the torch to someone else.
But then My idea of a Predator 3 would be a properly done Alien vs Predator.
Maybe some where Along the Lines of this: A Pred ship crashes somewhere on Earth. (preferably in the Jungle) A covert Ops team is sent to collect it's tech (a la Predator 2) but they encounter a different threat. Figuring how Arnie and Danny's Characters can come into play.
To continue. The Sole Surviving Pred is out to hunt the Aliens that killed his crew. In the Jungles, two xenos have made short work of the Covert Ops commando team, leaving only one survivor. The Pred hopes to stop the infestattion of the xenos and aid the lone human in stopping the aliens. The Pred then sacrifices itself with it suicide bomb. Cut to a few years later and a new story arc I'm still working on.
i truly want to see arnold come back : )
What would the plot be if one of both came back? I'd like to hear some ideas.
I believe The Rock should play the Predator more than anything. He has the moves, he's quick enough, athletic, and plus he's tall enough for the role as well.
I believe if another Predator movie is to happen, then I think it needs to be set in the Predators enviornment. Bring out more Predators and portray the Yajutas and the Hunters the right way. AVP ruined the Predators in terms of depictions, so I hope they get a director like James Cameron or Ridley Scott to do a Predator 3.
I don't think James Cameron or Ridley Scott would touch the franchise right now. Both a big name directors now and don't need something like this to help their carrers. If they did it it would be because it was a labor of love and respect to their fanbase.
I'm trying to think of an idea that would bring Arnold and Dan's characters into the same story line. I'll post it when I come up with something. Meanwhile why not take a look at my fan fic of Aliens Vs. Preds over at the fan film/Fic board or check out my Aliens Vs Pred site :-D http://darthrockwell.tripod.com/aliensvspredator/
Yes, Arnie back for T4 and Predator 4.
My second choice would be Vin Diesel.
I believe Arnold will be too old for Predator or Terminator 4. Who should direct a Predator 3? If it does indeed become a reality, I would truly like to see Cameron or Scott direct it. However, I'm open to Ronny Hu or who's another great sci-fi director?
I'm really not familiar with other great Sci-Fi directors. Cameron and Scott really stick out in mind.
I think they should bring back Danny Glover, Maria Conchita Alonso's character, and the woman in the first Predator movie. I believe Glover can still go with action, but with Arnie into the whole politics deal, I just don't see him letting go of that and going into movies again.
Aww c'mon. Do any of you really want to see Arnold act again??? He's too old now for this stuff, it would look very stupid and it would be idiotic for him to come back.
NEW CAST! It's time for reinvention! The Rock isn't a bad choice, but I would still pick someone more unique. Try a different approach, like an astronaut crashing on their (the Predator's) planet, and trying to survive it. I mean it's time to see their world and see how a human can survive it.
....that could be the point of the movie: an aging former hotshot commando is copying with his obsolescence...just as the Predator makes his return.
To answer someone else's question, a good sci-fi director is Paul Verhoeven (RoboCop, Total Recall). It'd be an interesting film with him at the helm.
Excuse my ignorance, but what does "copying with his obsolescence" mean?
Also, yes, Verhoeven would be a good choice to direct.
I'm sorry, that should be "coping" not "copying." And what I meant was that he would be getting used to the fact that he isn't as young or virile or lethal as he once was. He's getting used to the fact that he's not the top gun any more....he doesn't like it, but he's accepting it.
And then comes the Predator to kill the guy and he must fight back when he's not in his prime. I think that'd be kinda cool--something like the latter Eastwood movies.
Ya know, that's not that bad a concept, but I, just like many Americans, will have a hard time getting past "Arnold the Governor" to enjoy and take the movie seriously, I think. That is, if you are indeed suggesting an idea that would work for Arnold. In which case, the only film I think I could actually see him return to would be KING CONAN. I dunno, your idea isn't bad, I would just rather see something new and different ya know?
